Happy Valentine's Day, February 14

It is celebrated worldwide and named after Saint Valentine. The first Valentine's Day was in the year 496. Emperor Claudius II executed two men, both named Valentine, on Feb. 14 in different years in the 3rd century A.D. Their martyrdom was honored by the Catholic Church with the celebration of St. Valentine's Day. Having a particular Valentine's Day is thought to have originated from a Roman festival called Lupercalia in the middle of February, officially the start of their springtime. Incidentally, Cupid did not come along until the 14th century.
